Now this looks interesting:

Box rak

Want some extra carrying capacity (185litres) but don't want a roof rack (or it's full already) and don't fancy towing a trailer? The box-rak looks a neat solution, albeit significantly smaller than a bug, it looks a good way to carry excess kit. only £129 incl fittings at the moment too (not the tow bar)

Ugly as sin - although I suppose you could colour code it.

Thule offer much nicer looking tow bar boxes of different sizes, not cheap though.

Yes, granted the Thule 900 backup box looks good, and it is Thule, so you know it'll be solid. But with the Easy mount at £150 and then the box another £280, as you say, not cheap, and against £130 all in. (the Thule also has significantly higher capacity)

Not seen how easy it is to mount/demount the box. Any video I've found has been Flash based and I'm on the iPad at the moment. Trouble with these things is access to the rear "doors". As my EHU is in the engine compartment I foresee hassle.

Might be tempted, if money was no object Wink

Doesn't look like it gives that much extra storage especially for £130. Think packing a bit lighter is a much better option.
At the end of the day it's camping.

I'd be a bit worried about the amount of weight that's placed on the back. I understood that one of the reasons that the T2 bike racks can only take 2 bikes is due to the weight limit. I suppose it depends what you put in the box but tend to agree with Kiteman and pack light.

All rather moot in my respect, as I'm getting a roof rack. (though I still need to pack light. Can't believe how much clobber two little girls can find "necessary", or I find necessary with two little girls)
